Gilbert Davidson still hasn’t decorated his office on the Ninth Floor, but he has already challenged state agencies to find ways to cut money from their budgets.

The new chief operating officer for Gov. Doug Ducey’s administration is a seasoned city manager. Davidson spent 12 years in town management in Marana, where he arrived after managing his hometown of Willcox. He would frequently run into people around town complaining about potholes or trash or loose dogs.

Now, he’s hoping to apply what he learned on the city level to state government. While he won’t be fixing potholes, he’s focused on the Ducey agenda of altering government from the ground up.
